Viognier Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Our first vintage Viognier is a wonderfully floral white wine with a nice acidity and complex finish, but retains a fresh quality throughout. Fresh apricots, pineapple and ripened pear aromas invite you for more. Good alone or with almost any cuisine. Pronounced (vee-on-yay)

Varietal Definition
The most acclaimed white wine grape from France's Rhône Valley, Viognier is a highly aromatic varietal, with a flavor profile that could include peach, apricot, nectarine, lichee, musk and flower blossom. The heady perfume of this varietal is one of its trademarks, although its flavors are sometimes problematic in matching with food. However, it does well with lobster, crab and moderately flavored fish. Use it as an apéritif as an alternative to Chardonnay. The "Rhône Rangers" in California have done an excellent job promoting this varietal.
